Feeling burned out? I get it. How could you not be? You're likely juggling a thousand stressors and demands on your time. You're probably feeling lost and lacking the motivation to achieve your goals. Perhaps you're struggling with your self worth, identity, or maintaining healthy relationships. You’ve heard therapy can help, but you aren’t sure where to start or how to fit this into your busy life. It can be difficult to find an inclusive & affirming therapist that aligns with your worldview and understands the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ and BIPOC folks. If this is starting to sound familiar, you just might be in the right place!
We're living through hard times that have had a profound impact on Millennials, Zillennials, and Gen Z. It's okay that you're not okay. In our work together, we'll create an actionable plan that is tailored to your pace and needs. My collaborative approach to therapy infuses humor and creativity into sessions to make our time together enjoyable and engaging.
Hello! I'm Dr. Annisa Pirasteh, a queer therapist who is passionate about serving the LGBTQIA+ community. I utilize a social justice informed lens that acknowledges your unique circumstances. I have over a decade of expert experience supporting creatives, executives, and entrepreneurs to build the life of their dreams. Schedule a free consultation today! :)
